Fund Description

The Hussman Strategic Growth Fund (HSGFX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to grow investor capital. The fund focuses its attention on U.S. stocks that have the best opportunities for growth and seeks to defend capital during unfavorable market conditions by holding cash and bonds.

Given its actively managed tilt and potential to flood to cash in times of duress, HSGFX is best used as a side bet in a broader equity portfolio. The fund is managed by Hussman Strategic Advisors, Inc.
